BCGEU issues strike notice to the City of Fort St John

July 17, 2015

The BCGEU, which represents workers at the City of Fort St John, today issued 72-hour strike notice to the employer.

The union is looking for a fair and reasonable settlement, and doesn’t feel the employer put its best foot forward during negotiations.

A tentative agreement was recently rejected by 64% of the voting membership.

The BCGEU is seeking a more equitable offer in line with what other city employees are earning, including retroactivity.

The union is doing everything possible to avoid disruption to the public.

It has chosen instead to withdraw administrative services to city hall beginning Monday morning.
